How about a suit in a month… or two?

Wayan wrote yesterday about the experience of finding a suit in a day and I uniformly loathe him for it. Or rather, for being able to do it. Okay, I loathe him a little for shopping for ‘slim fit’ too, but my appearance of being in my 5th month of pregnancy is something I could do something about if I liked. My legs are pretty much stuck at this length. For me, suit shopping is a matter of looking about, finding something I like…. and then waiting a week for them to fix the inseam length.

So if I’m going to have to wait for them to fix it anyway, why not get it tailored to… suit? Raja Fashions is a Hong Kong tailor that regularly travels the world to take measurements and orders. From February 1st to 3rd they’ll be in a suite at the Pennsylvania Avenue Marriot taking measurements and you can make your reservation on their website. Starting at $300, they’re a bit more than off the rack – but not so much more as to be out of reach – and at $50 and up the custom tailored shirts aren’t much more than you’re paying at Hects.

    a Hong Kong tailor, eh? If I throw down $300 will I look better than a British Banker?

    See, when I did , I went a suit shopping and found that while the price was right, the shtle was 1997 HSBC and not a moment later.

    Is this guy more than that??
